Having itchy hands, I like popping my zits time to time (eww right, i know) :S And this bad habit which I'm trying to quit, have gotten me a couple acne scars on my cheeks :(

Any recommended products to treat such scars? :dry:

I heard that using pimple cream before you pop a zit would reduce the visibility of acne scars, but I have not actually tried using any products that would totally remove the scars :pinch: Maybe you can try visiting a dermatologist?

I would suggest Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator.
There’s a CorrectTone Technology that combines proven anti-aging and anti-spot ingredients.
It also reduces uneven skin tone.
I have been using it for two months, i can see my red spots getting lighter.

Try bio oil. I have heard them around with good reviews. Even in magazine.

I'm using that now on this scar I have on my right cheek. Been using it for about a week odd. Not quite seeing any results yet, maybe it takes a bit more time. Will update again. I heard a lot of positive reviews about it as well.

Yes please do so!
I've heard mixed reviews about this but if it works for you then I would most likely try since it's really affordable too B)

Try using NuTeen's Acne & Pimples Away Sleeping Mask if you are not willing to spend so much on skincare.
The effects has been really good so far from my personal experience :)

Are your scares severe?
You can look for a dermatologist. Used to have really dry skin and commercial products are not of much help in improving the condition. Thus turned to a dermatologist, everything improved a lot.
My brother used to have really serious acne and scarring problems (red spots on his face), after a year of usage of products, his skin condition totally improved so much that currently there is no red spot, and scarring problem had reduced a lot.

We went to this "NIKS Maple WEST Clinic". You can try google search and its quite well known. ((:

hope this helps (:
